Beyond Redemption (2015/Well Go Blu-ray)

Picture: B Sound: C+ Extras: C Film: C+

Billy (Brian Ho) is an enforcer within the Triad, but really he is an undercover cop. In order to prove himself to his 'boss' (et al), he destroys anything and anyone his boss needs, but when an innocent girl's life is at risk, he decides to protect her... risking blowing his cover and his mission in Bruce Fontaine's Beyond Redemption (2015).

The Vancouver Triad gangs are out of control and are fighting each other in a power struggle. Billy work as undercover cop to destroy them from within is working, yet is still forced to prove his loyalty by executing rival gang members. While killing bad guys isn't too much stretch for his morals, it's a different story when that girl's life is at risk. When his gang decide to take on the Dragonhead, the biggest Triad gang it becomes an all-out war. Can he cut through all this with the least amount of innocent carnage?

Can you really call a movie a Chinese movie if the characters don't speak Chinese? This movie felt like they were trying to make martial art action film, but it seem more like a gangster wannabe story, aside from the Asian looking cast there was no other Asian culture, so that spilled over into how it played for me. Nickolas Baric, Raymond Chan, Peter Chao, Eddy Ko and Josette Jorge also star.

The 1080p digital High Definition image transfer is a competent HD shoot, but nothing spectacular, yet the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix runs into limits and problems that include a few location audio issues and an awkward feel throughout. Extras include behind the scenes fighting and trailers.
